13 Oct MONKEYPOX  ​IS NO MONKEY BUSINESS

monkeypox1

Monkeypox has been causing panic across Nigeria, as unconfirmed reports state that it has spread across six or seven states.

The viral disease, caused by an Orthopoxvirus,​ has a relatively recent history, having been​ discovered in monkeys in 1958​. ​ Although a “vesicular disease in monkeys” as described in the 1860s​,​ the disease and eventually the causative virus, was named monkeypox because the lesions (pox) seen in monkeys developed like other known pox-forming diseases (pustules that eventually break open, ulcerate, crust over, and some pox form scars in the skin).​

Symptoms
 The first symptoms that occur are nonspecific- fever, sweating, malaise, and some patients may develop a cough, nausea, and shortness of breath. About two to four days after fever develops, a rash with papules and pustules develops most often on the face and chest, but other body areas may eventually be affected, including mucus membranes inside the nose and mouth​.(Source: medicinenet.com)​​
Seven Prevention Tips
  1.  Avoid contact with squirrels, rats and monkeys, especially animals that are sick or found dead.
  2. Practice good hygiene, always wash hands with soap and water after contact with animals or when caring for sick human relatives or soiled beddings. 
  3. Avoid contact with respiratory droplet of infected animals or humans, i.e holding animals close to the face.
    Note: There is very little information that allows one to exclude any animal from contracting monkeypox. Therefore, it should be presumed that any mammal including common household pets, could be infected if exposed to the disease.
  4. Avoid contact with persons infected with the disease or suspected of the disease.
  5. Handle materials used by or to treat infected persons with care- e.g bedding clothes, and any other contaminated material
  6. Cook all meat very thoroughly, especially bush meat
  7. If you are a farmer, call in expert in suspected cases of animal illness and wear gloves when examining them. (​Source: Premium Times)

13 Oct WANT TO KNOW WHAT IS REALLY EATING INTO YOUR PROFIT?

work problems

“If you can measure it, you can manage it” goes the oft-quoted business dictum. Unfortunately, most organizations do not really pay attention to this. The next few paragraphs reveal the extent to which organizations are losing money because workplace productivity is not well measured.

The following conversation transpired between a manager, Ejiro, and his talented staff, Silas.

Manager: I noticed that the e-zine we send out has not been translating to sales as expected. So, I think we should look at other marketing ideas to reach out to our target audience.

Silas: Well, considering that it is a free service, I wouldn’t advise that we stop, even if it is not yielding immediate results.

Manager: Really? What does it require and how much time does it take you to put each edition together?

Silas: Knowledge, experience and skills for a better period of two hours.

Manager: What does the company pay you for at the end of each month?

Silas: (Pause) My skills, talents, time, and…(Light bulb!)

In the above scenario, the employee is right, in that no cost is expended on the platform used in sending the e-zine. However, in the real sense, the employee did not understand that those two hours he puts in to prepare and broadcast the newsletter translates to a cost- in terms of his wages. Just as the local parlance goes, “Time na money”.

While the Nigerian remuneration practice is ‘per month billing’, it is imperative to note that employees’ productivity is a reflection of time used to get work done- whether it involves creative thinking, planning with the aid of technology or traditional means and actual implementation. So, an employee’s wage is the summation of his or her productive outputs during the period under review.

Therefore, where an employee fails to accomplish a task or project within stipulated time, it automatically translates as time theft on the part of that employee. This productivity gap, in turn, diminishes the company’s performance and, ultimately, its bottom line. It is for this reason that organizations need to put measures in place to manage employee productivity.

But how can this be done? Here are some suggestions to help your company measure and manage employee productivity.

Replace paper logs with an automated biometric device that will help you accurately manage employee attendance and curb time theft.

Swap your desktop human resources application for a cloud-based solution. With this, you can manage from one central location your employees work productivity throughout their stay in your organization.

Do away with archaic paper records and get a cloud based appraisal system that suits the peculiarities of your organization. This helps you accurately manage and store your appraisal for record and promotional purposes.

In conclusion, while it is true that every organization must define how it wants to operate, a common factor is employee productivity. Hence, one of the most critical strategic management decisions any organization can make is not just the right hire but how to manage its human resources for optimum productivity.

06 Oct Top Advantages of Fingerprint Authentication

Fingerprint

Biometrics are automated methods of recognizing a person based on a physiological or behavioral characteristic. Among the features measured are face, fingerprints, hand geometry, handwriting, iris, retinal, vein, and voice. Biometric data are separate and distinct from personal information. Biometric templates cannot be reverse-engineered to recreate personal information and they cannot be stolen and used to access personal information.

Using a unique, physical attribute of your body, such as your fingerprint or iris, to effortlessly identify and verify that you are who you claim to be, is the best and easiest solution in the market today. That is the simple truth and power of Biometrics Technology today. Although biometric technology has been around for many years, modern advances in this emerging technology, coupled with big reductions in cost, now make biometrics readily available and affordable to consumers, small business owner, larger corporations and public sector agencies alike.

Below are some advantages of the fingerprint authentication mode

  • Biometrics has been used effectively for more than a decade for time and attendance and workforce management. Despite widespread use, confusion and misconceptions about the technology and its capabilities persist. These concerns are easily dispelled when the facts about biometrics are established.
  • Biometrics offers unparalleled ability to quickly and accurately capture real-time, labor data and provide a nonrepudiated audit trail.
  • Biometrics has undergone intense scrutiny and the results are in – when properly deployed, biometrics work well and are safe, secure, and accurate.
  • Biometrics offers organizations a broader range of direct and indirect time, cost, and operational benefits than alternative time and attendance methods.
  • Fingerprints are much harder to fake than identity cards.
  • You can’t guess a fingerprint pattern like you can guess a password.
  • You can’t misplace your fingerprint, like you can misplace an access card.
  • You can’t forget your fingerprints like you can forget a password.

28 Sep HIRE AND ARCHIVE DATA WITH JOB CLOUD

HIRE

How much time does your organization’s hiring manager or HR manager spend on recruiting the most qualified employee for the available job vacancy at your organization? Does your company’s budget annually allocate thousands of dollars on newspaper advertisements and other media advertisements to publicize immediate job vacancies? Most importantly, does the current hiring process bring the ideal candidate for the job vacancy?

The first step of recruiting is to determine your ideal recruiting target. Identifying the common places of qualified prospects & their job acceptance criteria is key. Failure to identify these, results in recruiting less qualified individuals.

Having completed the first step of your recruitment process, the next most critical task is to screen applicants. Sorting candidates based on their qualifications precisely is a crucial task carried out by HR Personnel. Missing out one qualified applicant may mean the loss of recruiting efforts for the ultimate goal. Also, within the many applications maybe candidates who are eligible for another job vacancy. Such candidates applications need to be preserved to be picked out when the relevant job vacancy is available. This saves time and effort consumed on the first few steps of the recruitment process for every new job vacancy.

Once the applicants have been shortlisted, the next challenging issue for HR administrators is to schedule interviews and assign hiring managers to all the candidates.

Almost all of these steps in the recruitment process are performed by HR Personnel manually.

TAMS recruitment module (JOB CLOUD) is a comprehensive solution for the entire recruitment process from publicizing your company’s job vacancies to hiring employees.

The JOB CLOUD module comes with a candidate/applicant archiving database, enabling HR Personnel to archive applicants who have applied for different job vacancies. Suppose your company is currently recruiting software engineers. Once the appropriate individuals have been hired, the job vacancy will be closed.  But the hundreds of applications received will remain in the system even when recruiting employees for a different job vacancy. Hiring managers will have to painstakingly sort the applications. As a solution, the resume archiving plug-in lets you archive unwanted candidate records, while leaving only the required records in the system. These archived applicants will be stored in the database for future use.

12 Sep REVOLVING HRM TECH TREND

articlebanner001

Human resource software helps businesses complete vital scheduling, performance tracking, recruiting and payroll tasks. There are two major options out there: you can install conventional computer-based applications on your local network (i.e. PCs or network servers) or access web-based/cloud based HR software through your browser.

In recent times, organizations with multiple locations are gradually keying into the cloud based HRM solution due to its user friendly features and the ability to manage employees from their recruitment days to retirement/retrenchment/resignation or termination days centrally from a location.

When purchasing a solution to enhance productivity, it is crucial to have a basic knowledge of what you are buying, hence why this article shares with you the advantages of a cloud based HRM software. Below are some of the advantages you will get using the cloud based solution;

After your business signs up and pays for this service, staff members can begin using online programs immediately. There’s no need to download huge files and run installs. If a computer already has a compatible Web browser, you probably won’t have to install any new applications to get your HR software up and running.

You can use cloud software on PCs in any location with an adequate Internet connection. Some providers also offer smartphone or tablet access. The system stores all human resources information on a central server, so your data is always available as well. Consequently, you won’t need to copy files or applications from one computer to another.

Most cloud software developers regularly create backups of HR files. You’re unlikely to experience significant data loss if a provider’s server fails. Likewise, you won’t lose information when an office computer’s hard drive ceases to function. A staff member can immediately switch to a different PC and continue working.

If you want to use the latest HR software every year, you’ll probably spend less on a Web-based system. This option involves a smaller initial investment. Furthermore, it will cut labour costs because employees won’t need to waste time installing or maintaining these programs, along with mitigating the risk of it becoming obsolete with changes in operating systems.

Cloud-based human resource applications usually offer a better solution for businesses with locations in multiple countries. Most programs allow users to select one of several languages. The system also centralizes data and makes it easy to access from offices around the world.

07 Sep Keeping Kids safe

backtoschoolBanner1

Back-to-school security tips

Back-to-school does not have to mean back-to-worrying. Though safety inside school is ultimately the responsibility of the principal and school staff, parents can take a few basic steps to ensure a safe school experience.

Learn the school’s emergency procedures. Emergency plans and phone  numbers are usually included in school handbooks and posted in classrooms. Taking  a few extra minutes to familiarize yourself and your child with emergency information can  give him the confidence he needs to act quickly in emergency situations.

Know travel routes to and from the school. Make sure you and your child know both primary and alternate routes. In an emergency, roads can be blocked and it’s important to have a backup plan.

Know and follow school security and safety measures. These might include signing in when visiting the school, being escorted when walking through the building, or wearing a visitor pass. Following these procedures also sets a great example for your kids.

Talk with your child about safety. Be specific. Talk about instinct and paying attention to funny feelings of fear. Explain what to do if she doesn’t feel safe (find a teacher, etc.). Make sure she knows how to contact you or a trusted neighbor who is likely to be at home.

Inform school staff about health and emotional concerns. Whether your child has a food allergy, a physical disability, or has been subject to bullying, make sure to keep your child’s teachers and principal in the loop.

Get involved. Talk with the principal about what you can do to increase school safety, such as organizing parents to form a neighborhood watch before and after school. Sometimes parent groups are highly successful in making improvements in traffic safety during drop off and pick up times.
